The sea gulls soar upward as the sun beams stream downward over Lake Michigan and the Kewaunee, WI lighthouse and pier. Since the colors were somewhat muted, I decided to convert this one to a monochrome look.
This is one of those images worth looking at in a larger size. To do so, click on the photo.
Seagulls take to flight before the Kewaunee, Wisconsin pier and lighthouse as the sun rises over Lake Michigan.
Yesterday I was on the beach to photograph the sunrise. I had finished started walking back to the car, ready to head home to grab breakfast before going to work. As I neared the parking lot, I noticed a large number of seagulls resting on the beach. I figured, as I got closer, they would eventually take off. So I prepared my camera for the shot.
When they began to take off, with my camera at arm’s length, I just pointed in their direction and snapped away – one-handed because I was carrying my tripod in the other. Looking directly into the brightness of the sun, I really couldn’t see what I was shooting, so I was rather pleased with what I saw when I downloaded the morning’s images to my computer.
